Why Cross Country Skiing Is The Worst Sport Ever (Hilarious Video)

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed this morning when I saw a familiar mustachioed face staring back at me.

I knew I had to tune into whatever silly nonsense was about to come out of Paddy O’s mouth.

For context, Paddy O’Connell has written for Freeskier, SKI, Powder, Men’s Journal, & more. He’s a podcast host, video personality, and just all-around great guy. He’s one of my favorite people in “the industry”.

Okay, I’ve probably tooted Paddy’s horn enough. Let’s get to his hilarious commentary on cross country skiing.

Paddy appeared on The Pursuit, a podcast hosted by Mr. Adam X on The Out of Collective network. He explains why he absolutely hates cross country skiing, but that he continues to do it for some reason.

Check it out:

He makes some good points, ya know?

Cross country skiing is fun the same way that trail running is fun in the dead of summer. It’s extremely exhausting, there’s little excitement, and yet we still do it.

Well said Paddy, well said.

I might have to get on some XC sticks this winter just to punish myself for all of the cookies and pie I’m about to eat this holiday season.
